The Act provides for the crimes of stalking and aggravated assault by defining important terms and providing penalties. Victims are entitled to notice of the offender's release if the victim provides specified information to officials to facilitate that notice. Constitutionally protected behavior and legitimate business activities are excluded. Persons charged with stalking or aggravated assault are entitled to pretrial release, but a released offender may have several conditions, outlined in the Act, attached to the release order. The Act amends the definition of family violence to include stalking and aggravated assault.
